The Airbus A321neo Performs Its Maiden Flight

by Staff on February 9, 2016

The A321neo’s maiden flight lasted five hours and 29 minutes, during which tests were performed on both high and low engine speed variation and on systems behavior. Tests were also performed during the first flight to validate the aircraft’s flight envelope.

TAM will initially offer three São Paulo-New York round-trips each week with A350-900s, later increasing its A350-900 utilization on the service to a daily round-trip.

Singapore Airlines’ first Airbus A350-900 performed its maiden flight on February 2, taking off from Toulouse Blagnac Airport and flying over Southwest France before landing again at Toulouse.
